Pettine: Alonso not locked in with starters

Posted by Chris Brown on May 21, 2013 – 2:43 pm

As we reported in our practice notes on Monday, second-round pick Kiko Alonso, was getting first team reps on the defensive side of the ball. While defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has liked what he’s seen from Alonso to this point, by no means is the rookie locked in with the first unit.

“It’s a credit to his preparation. He came in and did a good job in the rookie camp,” said Pettine. “Now, we’re still in the process of rolling guys through, we’ve been alternating.  This is his week to get with the ones so it’s still a work in progress. There’s been no commitment made there. But he’s done a nice job. He stepped in that huddle and he’s not out of place.”

Alonso has primarily lined up as a ‘mike’ linebacker on defense this spring.
